the government shutdown during the mid-90s? >> brooke, it would be much worse. a government shutdown is one thing. even in the government shutdown vital government services will continue. people got medicare checks and medicaid, social security, unemployment checks. the government continued to pay its creditors what was due. but if the debt ceiling is not raised next week, none of that happens. government simply doesn't have any money to pay medicare, medicaid, social security, unemployment insurance, nor can it pay its creditors. it has a limited amount of money but that amount of money continues to dwindle as it tries to pay off everybody it owes. that's why interest rates will go up. everybody who owes money or the government owes money to, including international lenders, are going to get nervous. >> you're saying the situation would be worse come next week. i've also done reading here. you say the budget deficit isn't our biggest problem, it's joblessness. let me ask you this, what does washington need to do, robert reich with regard to the debt ceiling, negotiations, that would create a bet
